Ok.... Last question I promise....
Last week I had a bad series of anxiety. I was on holiday and before I left work the week before I was v stressed. I just couldn't face work and everywhere I went I was stessed. I was also putting myself under a lot of pressure to find a new job but worried that I may not have the energy to go for anything.
Anyway holiday came and I felt great until just before I left my home I got a wierd feeling in my chest. I don't know why but suddenly the adrenaline got going and as a result I felt anxiety all week. Mid week I felt that I was going mad and felt that these symptoms would be always with me.
However I did control it. It was made significantly worse because I felt a bit down about my future. I knew I had to sort it and I was happy when I was with my gf and friends. I then spoke with a friend and she told me to be grateful for things everyday. It felt great! I have now created a vision board of my future and after a bike ride I felt good.
My slight thing now in the back of my mind is whether I have, or will develop gad?
I'm 35 and would have thought it would have developed if it was going to. I guess I have always been a worrier but rarely have trouble sleeping and usually, ha episodes aside, feel pretty relaxed and chiled out. So I don't think I have gad but still worried.... This is daft isn't it?? I don't mind ha as I feel I can handle it better but I am terrified of feeling anxiety all the time.
